Yes, I am a huge horror fan. One of the first movies I remember watching when I was a kid with my dad is Army of Darkness. At the time, I just thought it was a fun weird off the wall movie. I loved every cut scene and one liner. Plus, the leading actor had this crazy chin. Little did I know this movie would actually set the tone for a good chunk of my life and my obsession with all things horror and supernatural.
When Starz green lighted Ash vs Evil Dead, I was ecstatic! I couldn’t wait and when the show aired, I was instantly in love! Even tho I still love the original Evil Dead movies, there is a special place in my heart for this series. Any way I can get more Bruce Campbell, I’m all over it.
So let’s chat about this tea dedicated to the Evil Dead Series, Boomstick. If you are familiar with the series, Boomstick is one of the iconic fixtures of the movies/show. Boomstick is the gun that Bruce Campbell aka Ash uses. With that kind of description, you would think this would be a smoky blend of some sort. While there is a underlying smoke from this green flavored tea, there is also a sweetness.
Boomstick is a gunpowder green tea with strawberry flavorings added in. Sweet yet smoky and that is exactly the flavor profile of this tea as well. What you really come away with are this rich bursting strawberry notes that sweetened that smoky gunpowder green tea perfectly. The perfect way to describe the main character as well. He is sweet and cares as much as he is sleek and charming, well and maybe a bit off the wall as well.
Overall, a great flavored unique tea that was bursting with so much fresh flavor. I could see this being an amazing tea as a cold brew too. Especially with those chilly fall/winter days upon us. A fresh burst of strawberry can always brighten up someone’s day.
I will be ordering more of this tea so I can watch the series premiere of season 2 of Ash Vs Evil Dead in style while drinking out of my awesome mug! And yes, I have to end this review like this. . .Groovy!
